Denise Resnik’s dream of creating a place for adult individuals with autism and other neuro-diverse conditions to live and learn was 20 years in the making. First Place-Phoenix, the inaugural community by the nonprofit First Place AZ, is a $15 million, 81,000-square-foot housing development, set to open its doors in summer 2018. First Place-Phoenix will also offer training for independent living, as well as host a research and policy center.

The project recently received a boost when the Phoenix Mayor’s Commission on Disability Issues presented its Architectural Award to First Place-Phoenix.
